Beginning early in 2010, the Lincoln’s Young Professionals Group will honor one member each month as the Young Professional of the Month. Lincoln’s YPG has established a committee responsible for selecting honorees based on community and YPG involvement, volunteer activities and professional accomplishment.

The Young Professional of the Month will receive a display plaque and appear on the KLIN Morning Show. Their picture and bio will also be displayed on a specific area of the Lincoln YPG website and will receive special recognition at upcoming events. Anyone is invited to nominate a Lincoln Young Professional for the award.

“The YP of the month award was started to honor deserving young professionals who distinguish themselves in community service as well as professional accomplishment,” said Will Hays, member of the YPG marketing committee.
Applications are now being accepted for this ongoing award. Those interested in nominating a young professional can apply online at or contact Stephanie Dostal at 402-436-2359.

The Lincoln Young Professionals Group (YPG) was founded in 2007 to empower young professionals in Lincoln to create an energetic and dynamic environment for learning, networking, and entrepreneurship. YPG is a program of the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce.
